Asked by Mar 17, 2016 at 12:27 AM about the 1997 Toyota Corolla DX

Question type: Car Customization

I have changed the spark plugs and  put
some high energy low impedance  10.5mm
wires on my 97 along with a specter
performance  in-housing filter but I'm still
dealing with slow acceleration and rough
shifting from first to second gear with the
automatic transmission any suggestions for
me?

Sounds like a transmission or torque converter issue.

Thanks that makes sense any suggestions for acceleration ?

How is your acceleration of engine when in park or neutral? If you experience this only while in gear driving, there may be an issue with timing or a sensor causing decreased engine output, hard to be sure without driving it myself.

It feels the same either way maybe a little more sensitive when I park

You may have an issue with fuel delivery, such as clogged fuel filter, dirty injectors, etc..
